Make Pumpkins out of Trash!

When life gives Scott Stoll trash, he recycles it – into amazing Halloween pumpkin and monster decorations! Can you believe Scott makes all of these creative creations from paper mache?!

I’m amazed at how Scott takes cast off newspaper, cardboard and cereal boxes from this...

..to this!



Scott doesn’t limit himself to paper mache pumpkins. He makes a slew of creepy creatures that go bump in the night. My favorite is his four-foot troll Boris the Bolter. Scott created Boris for a local celebration.


Anyone who complains that Halloween is a holiday that is nothing but cheesy cheap throwaway plastic gewgaws needs a dose of creativity and find the work of a creative genius like Scott!

Wow! They are FANTASTIC. I wouldn't have the nerve to light a tealight in a pm pumpkin though. xx

Andi - it looks like he uses battery operated tea lights in his pumpkins.
